A Busy Time In Room 6

Storytime

Room 6 have a “story of the month” which we listen to after lunch. Last month’s story was The Gruffalo. Here we are colouring our Gruffalos, cutting them out and showing them to each other!

Get Well Soon!

We made “Hope you’re feeling better” cards for a special friend. We collected things at Outdoor Education and then chose what we wanted to put on our pictures. Then we wrote our names on our pictures and sent them to her.

Exploring Maths In Room 10

Room 10 have been busy investigating measurement using different materials.

We used connecting blocks and joined them together to see who make the tallest group of blocks and worked collaboratively to create the longest group.

We also took maths out into the playground, measuring the length of lines using leaves and other materials and comparing our heights to the width of the path. There was also an impromptu lesson on volume and capacity as we watched the dumper truck put a tonne of sand into our sandpit!

Celebrations In Room 4

Room 4 has been very busy celebrating different events and successes over the last few weeks.

We have been getting ready for Christmas! We have put on our festive clothes and hats and made Christmas ornaments to decorate our class tree!

We made decorations with our footprints and hand prints and we enjoyed the sensory play with the paints.

We made the Scottish flag to celebrate St. Andrews day.

In Room 4 we have been developing our skills when using our trikes. We enjoy going on our trikes and finding new ways of keeping active!
